The aim of the study was to compare the selected strength variables among female bowler and female batsman in cricket. For the purpose of the study 20(N=20) participants (10 players were bowler and 10 players were batsman) of age 18-24 years were selected from well experienced with their game and they have played up to national level competitions. The researcher had selected 7 strength variables to compare among female bowler and batsman. The strength variables were as shoulder strength, arm strength, abdominal strength, left hand grip strength, right hand grip strength, back strength and leg strength. The analysis of data by analyzing descriptive (Mean and Standard deviation) and‘t’ test for independent samples for comparison of means. The level of significance was set at 0.05 levels. The results suggested that the female cricket bowler is having more shoulder strength compared to the female batsman. That may be because of the nature of their game position during game play. Bowler need to bowling to the batsman continuously and for that they practice very hard to improve their shoulder muscle which will ultimately help them to throw the ball fast. Whereas the batsman concentrates on batting and this may be the reason that there is significant differences between the two groups. The batsman group is having higher right grip strength. As all the batsman were right handed batsman it was very obvious that they will have significantly higher grip strength compared to the bowler. Because they practice more by holding the bat. On the other hand except back strength all other variables have shown no significant differences.
